    One of the reasons why I don’t carry a “smart” phone …

    Yup, I’ve had that before – if the phone doesn’t detect you’ve held it to your ear quick enough, you’ll be hanging up quicker than you can say “hello”.
    And therein lies the irony which Jimmy captures so beautifully – “Don’t touch the touchscreen”

    That’s why I still have a flip phone.

    I’m going back to a flip phone as soon this POS I have now dies.

    So true! This happens about 90% of the time when my wife hands me her Lumia.

    /Can’t butt-dial a flip phone either.

    He must have been holding it wrong.

    And I’m waiting for my flip phone to die so I can go back to my old phone. But I once asked my mother to hold my phone so I could do something, and I later discovered she managed to put it on “mute”.

    …I love my flip phone – my sister is pushing hard for me to get a smart phone – why would I want to pay that much, and then pay so much more a month, for something that I’ve gotten along without so nicely?

    We have a mixed marriage – he has an Android, I have an iPhone. I HATE his phone. Every time I touch it, something gets hosed up.

    Small children have a secret way to make an iPhone go into visually disabled mode. difficulty: how to get it back to normal mode.

    I finally learned not to punch “Talk” when my daughter hands me her phone with someone on the line, because that turns in off. My phone comes up with the picture mode a lot, and I just fiddle around with it till it goes away. Don’t know how to take pictures yet – only had it two or three years.

    Mine is a simple no-nonsense phone…I do not need to be in touch with everyone on the damn planet!!!
